    Thumbs up Memorial Day Weekend - What's your plan?

    So the big weekend is almost here. Lets hear your plans for a fun vacation/weekend.

    I will not be traveling anywhere, might not even get in the car. Will probably go for a few bicycle rides to the harbor (Dana Point) and just work around the house. Nothing to exciting but I like to stay off the roads when all the crazies are out there.

    I'm sure I will be BBQing and having a few cold drinks.

    Can you top that?

    I'm just looking forward to a few days off in a row for a change with no inspections or reports to write. As nice as it is to be busy again, I haven't had off three days in a row since the beginning of April. Looking to get some fishing in at least one morning or evening.

    I think Wayne's going to make a little more than me. I have a 50th birthday party to attend for one of my "older" friends on Sunday. He's not much older, but I like to give him a hard time while I still can. Should be fun. It's also graduation weekend here for high school, so a few parties on Saturday as well.

    I'm not heavily religious but this is a good story. It's worth remembering.

    Holidays, major sporting events, early mornings, late afternoons, and weekends are just other times to make money for me. Real estate doesn't sleep, and neither do I. My competition does, though. LOL

    My wife and I are going to make the 6 hour drive from Atlanta to Destin, FL, for some R&R. Going to attempt to avoid traffic by leaving Sunday and returning Wednesday. Beautiful white sand beaches down there.

    I'll avoid the capitalists that capitalize on holiday spending.

    I will think about all of those individuals whose one and only precious life was cut short by the conflicts that memorial day was created to reflect upon.

    They were voluntary or involuntary pawns ( if you do not play chess then you may not appreciate what I mean ) in class or socioeconomic struggles.

    Were it not for them we may not be as comfortable as we are today or even exist.

    I went to the DFW national cemetery memorial day ceremony today. Very humbling experience.
    Freedom isn't free. The rows upon rows of veterans grave markers testify to that fact.
    I salute them and to all veterans!

    A little reminder:
    On Memorial Day in May, the flag should fly at half-staff from sunrise until noon, and at full-staff from noon until sunset.

    past tense:

    We invited everyone on our block to a backyard BBQ; had a good turnout. Enjoyed everyone's company. Met new neighbors. Thought about those who died for our country and prayed for their families.

    (worked real hard getting the backyard presentable to our neighbors)
